Memorial Day Mass at Gate of Heaven Cemetery May 31, 2021
May 31 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Let us join together in prayer in God’s name, on His sacred grounds, this 2021 in memory of all of our loved ones that have passed and to honor all of our veterans on this very special day of our United States of America, our annual Memorial Day.
Our Memorial Day Mass, with Celebrant Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr, will be outside at our beautiful Gate of Heaven Cemetery surrounding our Priest’s Mound Circle close to our main entrance. Parking will be arranged and people will be transported from specific parking lots and sections of Gate of Heaven to the Priest’s Mound Circle. Please plan to come early. Mass will start by 11:00AM.
***We ask all that are attending the mass to plan their arrivals between 10:00AM and 10:15AM for the parking, transport to the mound circle, and seating arrangements.***
We will have music playing before mass begins.
Please remember to bring a folding chair!
God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride. Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters. Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
